5:39 am
front. it reaches down into tennessee. the rain is much more vigorous down in tennessee, mississippi, and alabama than it is this far north. when the front comes through, you have to make changes. that's all right. if we get out of the 90's and only be in the 70's or 80's over the weekend, that will be a step in the right direction anyway. let's look at the current readings outside. it is warm this for this time of year. humidity still up in. 66%. 29.87 the pair metric fresh. that's low. it has been showing a falling tendency for the past couple hours. that front still is west of us and moving in. southwest wind at 3 miles per hour. litter winds become more westerly and will help drop humidity a bit and hold temperatures down. i mentioned rainfall. we had less than an inch of rain, and we have a deficit of 2
5:40 am
1/4 inches. there is significant rain in the forecasts, but not for the weekend. we're getting a bit of the best of both worlds here. camebridge 77. salisbury 73. edgewood 75. parkton 72. west minute -- westminster 70. clouds are almost in the town now. it is only a narrow band of clouds. very little rain with us. the front will be coming in later and sliding just to our south. then it slows down. and in will be several waves moving along this front over the next day or so, and each of those will bring rain up our way. and we could use it. so this is not all bad news, plus there will be a second system out to the west which will be adding to the mix here. so we do have a couple days of rain in the forecast as early as
5:41 am
next week, but not for the weekend, really. mostly sunny today. so we'll experience a few clouds today and the sun will be back. it will be unseasonnably warm, but only in the 80's, not the 90's, and humidity will be down a bit. insta-weather futurecast shows the front passing through, so by 4:00 in the afternoon, any clouds associated will be on the way out. we see no rain here at all. watch what happens as we go into sunday. we see moisture in the south. then rain chances finally sneak into the picture by sunday night into monday and then into tuesday, and this could be a significant rain fall. here's the forecast. 85 today, 81. humidity down, temperatures falling. tomorrow a lot of clouds. with a 30 chance for rain late in the day probably after sunset. and for the game on sunday, it looks like we'll see a mix of clouds and some sun and temperatures around 70 at game time. then a good rain chance monday and tuesday tapering off
